CMRI Events & Symposiums


The Center for Municipal Research & Innovation holds two research symposiums per year, one in conjunction with the League's annual conference in August and one in conjunction with the legislative conference in November. These symposiums bring together public administrators, elected officials and the academic community. Each symposium focuses on specific local government issues, and how research, statistics and trends can be used in the local government setting.
Below are dates for upcoming research symposiums. Specific workshop details, locations and registration information are posted approximately six weeks prior to each event. Presentations from previous symposiums are available to the right.

Recent events have reminded us of the power extreme weather has on lives, property and communities. The potential of water to transform our thriving cities into struggling recovery zones demands municipal governments take action now to reduce and prevent vulnerabilities in the future. 

During this free half-day event, we will discuss the impacts water disasters have on our coastal and inland communities; explore the connection between land-use planning, economic development and storm water management; and share tools to assist in long-range planning and smart infrastructure investments.
City managers, planners, water utility directors and elected leaders are encouraged to join us on Wednesday, December 6, as we forge a path into a water-resilient future.
